    I usually use the premixed Model Master or Polly Scale acrylic versions but here are some possibilities:

    From Tamiya Paints: RLM 81--> XF51:1 + XF64:2
    (reference: Eastern Carolina Plastic Modelers)

    But since there are actually a couple of versions of RLM 81 you might also want to check out THIS guide:
    http://www.ipmsnymburk.com/tamiya mixing/RLMwithTamiya.pdf

    The above guide actually shows some color chips for the various shades of RLM 81 so it's probably a good place to start.

    For Humbrol: Braunviolett RLM 81 Brown Violet +> 3*Hu:150 + 2*Hu:33
    (reference: Color Reference Charts - Humbrol Colour System Binder<)

    and here's a little background:

    RLMColorPt4

    Confused? I know I am. :lol:

    A bit late now Keith I know, but for future reference, Humbrol Grey No.27 is close enough to use straight from the tin.
